Ted and Barney argue about who has "dibs" on a hot girl at the bar, and discover that she is there with Cindy. Cindy and the girl at the bar eventually get married and have a daughter. Robin is still heartbroken over Don, but a challenge from Barney pushes her to get over him. Marshall's closeness with his father and desire to start a family gets him into trouble with Lily. It is revealed that Ted meets his future wife at a wedding in which he is the best man. It starts raining at the wedding and he forgets his umbrella, which connects back to the past references that a yellow umbrella is what got Ted and his wife together.
